Based on what I understand for optimal battery maintenance being able to control charge not only based on timers but temperature and SOC would be much better.GlennD wrote:Sorry, I am a hardware person with no programming skills. Personally I just want a working EVSE with a timer. Chris maintains a website for wi-fi gui and I guess it works well but I have no interest.

The answers are Yes and Yes. You could definitely do this. There is a large installation in the LA area that does this with OpenEVSE based units. I tried to find a link for it, but couldn't.gridstop wrote:I know the Open EVSE supports changing charging current via the serial interface (and by the UI), but can this be done in the middle of charging? Or does it have to stop and re-start?
And will the leaf respond on the fly and lower/raise current? I've been thinking about whether Open EVSE could be used to make a dual charger for a single 40A line and negotiate current between the two of them. Or possibly sharing a single 40A line with a garage heater (so when the heater is on, lower current to 14A or something).
